Day 6: I was a bit under the weather. Just stayed at home in the morning, cooked fried noodles for breakfast and salmon with ginger tamarind sauce for lunch. After lunch we went to the city center as my laling would like to go to the #waterstones bookshop . But #arianamr and I went to oxford street area #jamumata dan #jamuperut ... sejuk2 ni cepat lapar 😂😍. I was looking for #pierrherme macarons at Selfridges (their macaron is much better than the famous L & less sweet). While we were walking, we bumped into this talented artist #xharmonielondonx and alsooooooio a #disney store 😅. Cemas mommy 😂😂😂. Nasib baik dia nak #tsumtsum je.
Day 5: It was cloudy in the morning. By 10am, ☀️ with blue sky. We returned our car, bought Oyster Card then took a bus to Regent Street. You know why? The answer is in the first picture. The longer I delay, the more questions I received from #arianamr 🤣🤣🤣. (Contoh soalan: Mommy, when can we go to Hamleys? Ulang 18 kali sehari 😂😂) . Once there, She was mesmerized as she said she had never seen a 5-storey toys shop 😅. Luckily out of so many things, she chose a magic box and a small lego collection. (Mommy said be responsible to yourself, if you think you are going to play with it, go and get it, otherwise please don’t). And she’s gonna charge ppl to watch her magic show (watch out this space ya!). 💰 💰 💰 😇. .
Then we went to Bayswater area, met my nephew, Along who’s studying in London. We had our lunch at #tukdin . The food is sooo yummy!!! Especially their gado-gado, daging cicah air asam and sambal ikan.
Lastly we went to Westfield... #shopping#windowshopping#summerbreak#london#instatravel
Day 4: Checked out from our cottage. Drove towards #sudeleycastle (still in #cotswolds )... one of the oldest castles in UK, built way back in the 11th century. They have a very nice garden and also artefacts from Queen Katherine Parr. Weather was cloudy then we drove for about 1h 30 mins to the #stonehenge . We arrived around 4pm, spent 30 minutes on the site and off we go. It was a bit rushed as we have to be in London by 6pm to get our key for our next airbnb. The drive took about 1h 50 mins and we checked in to a lovely house in central London around 6.20pm. Reallyyyyyyy nice house. #summerbreak#london#arianamr#homecooked#malaysianfood
Day 2: Started the day with noodles soup for breakfast. Fried noodles for me 😀. All home cooked. It was raining since morning so we decided to stay at home. By noon, the 🌧 stopped and we finally have a clear blue sky. .
We went to Visit Broadway Tower, which is just nearby... along the road, we saw golden fields everywhere. Apparently this is the plant that produced the rapeseed oil. Then we proceed to Snowshill Manor (both places are just about 15 mins away from our cottage). There is a huge garden in this area with several old buildings built by an architect, Charles Wade. We didnt get the chance to enter to the manor as It closes at 4.10pm. But we managed to stroll around the garden and had english tea at their tearoom (with scones, of course). .
By 5.30pm, we drove to Bicester Village (again?) hahaha...the catch is in the second last pic 😇😇😇. Dropped by the Tesco before we heading home to buy some groceries. Arrived around 10pm, cooked asam pedas mackerel, fried chicken, rice for our dinner 😋😋😋. (Note: that LC is not what I purchased. The host’s kitchen was equipped with pots, & pans, oven dish all from LC). #summerbreak#holiday#bicestervillage#arianamr#broadwaytower#snowshillmanor#homecooked#nofilter
This is our cottage. Love every bit of it, inside out. This time we would like to experience the country-side and we found this property on airbnb. Very clean, high standard, linen, bathroom amenities are all the same as hotel quality. The host is kind enough to supply us with a basket of food (bread, muesli, marmalade, biscuits etc), a bowl of fruits and some items in the fridge (eggs, milk, butter, cheese, juice). The kitchen have everything that I need hehehe... including oil, salt pepper sugar tea coffee , complete pots and pans, cutleries and so so many other things 😍. .
Suitable for 6 ppl. Highly recommended! #airbnb#holiday#summervacation#cottage
After more than 16 hrs journey, we finally arrived in London. A lonnnnggg awaited, postponed holiday. We cancelled this holiday last Dec when #arianamr had chicken pox and my hubby got a heart attack. So here we are. Experiencing the cold summer 😅. It was raining and cloudy throughout the day. -
Day 1: KUL-DXB-LHR, got our car at the airport, drove towards Portobello to buy our breakfast @ Makan Cafe, then proceed to Oxford for sightseeing and visiting the museum. Then stopped at the Bicester Village (for mommy to get some stuffs 😇) before we headed to our cottage in Blockley.
When you woke-up and received this great news 😍. I am sharing this news hoping that it will inspire others. When you give without hoping anything in return, you forgot that you were part of their life. #ikhlas#satisfaction#dalamrezekikitaadarezekiorglain#youarenotgettingpoorbygiving
The story: A few years ago I asked this teacher to look for poor students so that I could share a portion of my rezeki with them. The teacher shortlisted a few students. Most of the students in Form 4 or Form 5. The support goes on until they finished the high school. Then we would identify a new student as the new recipient. Just so happy that all of them charted bright future, even though with different level of education. #happiest . Frankly, I don’t even know these students and had not met them. I just asked this teacher to send my regards, advise them to study hard and doa for me to murah rezeki so that I could share with more people. All through this teacher. #syahdu#dogood#begood

Last weekend... she baked this cake from scratch. From weighing, measuring, cracking eggs, mixing, baking, frosting, decorating. All were done with minimum supervision from the staff and mommy!!! .
Highly recommended! At Mytown (next to Ikea Cheras). .There are other options you could choose from - cakes, cheesecakes, brownies, cupcakes, cookies etc. .
